Peace Corps Art

The past few days I’ve been taking the bus from Alexandria to Arlington.  We live in a diverse neighborhood on the north end of Alexandria, close to a large Latino community made up of mostly Central American immigrants.  Since I am usually one of the few gringos on the bus, it sort of reminds me of being in Costa Rica, which is where I first started making art for others besides myself.  Even though I worked in community economic development as a Peace Corps Volunteer with the local people of La Cruz de Abangares, I especially enjoyed collaborating with several of them on artwork for public display.  So I thought I’d post some pictures of that work, along with a few other non-art projects!
